Well that's obviously not enough profits. Why do you hate America subby?

/in all fairness profits going up 18% is relative to revenue and how much the profits were the previous year.

She is never going to turn off the pump. During her first week she skipped her daily "don't worry I'm not going to stop" press release one day and the Dow took about a 300 point hit.

If the House of Representatives would pass a jobs bill, there might be some reason to stop quantitative easing.

Once you go down the "stimulus" road, it will always be needed.

Which is 100% more than the .005% you were getting last year.

They've passed many. Most in the bottom drawer of "I have a stronger veto than the president" Reid.

it's less about QE than it is about a premature rate hike; last year Bernanke hinted at a hike @ 6.5% unemployment.  Some people have selective hearing (ignoring the part about QE being over for long before they'd even consider a hike), and Yellen's been trying to keep those people from shiatting themselves since she got the chair.

But none of the GOP legislation was ever passed with any chance in hell of making it through the Senate. Every single one was just posturing.

Except the budget of course, for which Boehner had to break the "Hastert Rule" and make his entire caucus look foolish.

Yep. Republicans got it all under control.

Yes, it actually would, but you probably didn't mean to really say that.

How does super low interest rates help the general economy? Answer: they don't. It's just free money for the banks. And the banks are lovin' it.

Yeah, what do you suppose will happen to the markets once the Fed starts pulling back on QE and eventually shut off the tap entirely?  And do you think Wall Street will tolerate that?
